Re: pepperpots - look middle eastern

Very interesting! It therefore appears that the matter of the 84 zolotniki in Persia is an urban legend.
As AG2012 says,it would be interesting to test 84 items.
If anyone does, I hope he wants to share the test result here.

Which country?

Hello
I would like to identify this chalice. It doesn't seem Italian to me, but I don't know which other country. Maybe Spanish?

Re: Lilliputians sugar tongs

Well, apparently it's a topic that has been talked about a lot. After reading a little here and there, I got the idea that my sugar tongs are a toy. They are much smaller than those described in the article by Graham Hodges and the bird-foot terminal would not allow for the collection of a saccharin...

Re: Hi please can you help id these marks on my beautiful tray

I understand that you are reluctant to to get it tested , but it would be better to do it. what you say "areas of light iridescence" looks a lot like copper that has lost its silver plating.

Re: Help with odd and un-identified hallmark

AG2012 is right, the initial letter is impossible to decipher, however I found only one mark that contains the number 99 and ends with the letter G. It belongs to Angelo Giannotti.

I was wrong
I found this book in a couple of Italian libraries and I was able to get the image.

Lilliputians sugar tongs

I found these sugar tongs made by Levi & Salaman in 1908.

I have never seen such small tongs: they could not even pick up a cube of sugar.
What could they serve? maybe a toy ?
Your opinion will be welcome.

Parma's hallmark

Hello everyone this is the Parma's XVIII century hallmark as published by Rosenberg on page 373 of the 4th volume. http://i65.tinypic.com/2vkxah1.jpg http://i66.tinypic.com/34jdpb8.jpg The caption refers to table II of the book The goldsmits of Italy by Churchill, which cannot be consulted in any It...

Re: Spanish charm

Great, Funkel
Thank you very much for the confirmation. In fact, the seller told me that it was a seventeenth-century chalice from Pamplona.But, you know, sometimes sellers lie a little or are simply wrong.

Spanish charm

I know it's wise to ask first and then buy, but I could not resist the charm of this Spanish chalice and I bought it, even if I do not know anything about Spanish silver. http://i67.tinypic.com/33pf2w0.jpg http://i66.tinypic.com/2qdzqsp.jpg Can someone give me information? Thanks Amena

It is not a censer but a hanging lamp.
The marks are from Verona between 1812 and 1872, but I could not find the silversmith's mark.

Re: Please help me to identify this candlestick

Hello neerka1 I am very interested in the mark you posted because it is very similar to a 19th century Parma's hallmark that has the same shape and the same double-headed eagle, with minor differences. I can not give an answer but I wonder why you chose the silverplate forum. Do you know for sure th...
